“This spectacular black and white kitchen cleverly incorporates all the practical needs of a family space without compromising visual appeal and charm. The heart of a bustling family home, the elongated space required extensive yet discreet pantry storage and a large work surface. Inspired, but not restricted, by the Hamptons style, we carefully selected each element to create a visual feast. The black island stretches impressively along the length of the kitchen, its striking Calacatta marble benchtop presenting a substantial work surface. The dark cabinetry expresses a sense of depth, contrasted against the backdrop of tall white cabinetry. Disappearing into the clean white surroundings, the Caesarstone bench in Pure White complements the tiled splashback, allowing the Calacatta island to be the hero. Extensive pantry storage and space for appliances are subtly integrated behind large bi-fold cupboards, while two refrigerators, flush-mount sinks and under-cabinet lighting focus on attention to detail and articulate design. The result is a charismatic family kitchen awarding every opportunity to cook, entertain and delight.”

Designer: David Bartlett for Art of Kitchens


We love: How the design is a visual feast along the whole length of the space.
